Adapted by Award Winning Writer Matt Grinter, from the chilling gothic novel by Mary Shelley.
We invite you to hear a tale that’s been told for over 200 years. A story of creation, rejection, love and disaster.
In an attempt to defy death Frankenstein creates a creature, a monster that is both childlike in its innocence but repulsive in its form. The horror stricken Frankenstein drives out the bewildered monster into an unforgiving world where it is met with cruelty and pain wherever it goes. Broken and desperate the creature determines to cause its creator the same crippling pain, and those that the Doctor loves most are going to suffer.
Parental rejection, body dysmorphia, prejudice, scientific responsibility, revenge and the nature of good and evil are deep-rooted in this horrific yet tragic classic tale.
